Thank you for choosing Carmine's Midtown. We are located in the heart of Times Square on 44th Street between 7th & 8th Avenue. Carmine's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine. With "wow-factor" sized portions and making any meal feel like an Italian American wedding feast. Platters of home-style antipasto, pasta, decadent seafood or meat entrees, and of course homemade desserts are all staples at Carmine's, meant for sharing amongst friends and family. When great food and wine are supported by friendly and knowledgeable service, the results are magic - we want every day to feel like a Sunday afternoon at Grandma's!

We had another wonderful meal at Carmine's. Our waiter was amazing (Maxon), our food was over the top and soooo much to eat, and our table was perfect for celebrating my daughter's 18th birthday! The place was super busy after Theater, but with reservations, our wait was short.

Food was excellent. Large portions and good value. Unfortunately, this place is in need of new management and new staff. It is total chaos. Managers no where to be seen, employees wandering around frantically with no intention. Server did not smile once or seemed engaged even the slightest. Biggest root of problem is an archaic queue management system. How about a text when the table is ready? It’d alleviate a lot of the chaos.

Always good with great service... Liked the fact we weren't rushed through the meal. Only thing was the pasta was a little under cooked for me but it's always tasty. And having the Tug Boat for dessert was brilliant!

We went for our girls day out lunch before seeing a show.
The food was delicious, and we had a great server. I would recommend going with at least 4 people since the food is served family style. This was our 5th time and we will be going back again!!

Had a pre-show lunch with friends. Josie was our server. She had excellent knowledge of the menu and helped us choose what to have so we had plenty of food but not too much. We had the Carmine's Salad, Penne Vodka and Lemon Chicken. All were delicious and made the perfect sized meal for a party of 5. We'll definitely be back!!

Waiter rushed, had to request plates a few times between apps and dinner. The salad was wilted and sad, great chicken piccata and shrimp scampi has no pasta... interesting but flavor was good. The pasta with broccoli and oil/ garlic has 3 pieces of broccoli... location is everything sometimes.

Food was great, as well as the service. Luckily we had reservations, we were there for dinner before an 8pm play, the restaurant was quite busy. We informed our server, and she sped up our service. Love coming here.

Everything was great. We had reservations and were seated quickly. The place was jammed packed! The food was was plentiful and very good. The one thing that could have made it a 10 star review was our waiter and his young helper. Never checked back with us. We had to hunt them down twice for more tea and bread. Also, for the check.

The penne with vodka sauce was outstanding, as were the meatballs. Portions were very generous. Three entrees fed six adults, with a little bit left over. The chocolate bread pudding was enormous and delicious. All six of us shared it. The whipped cream accompanying it was the thickest I've ever had. Five of us shared a generous pitcher of red Sangria. We each had two very full glasses of it. Yummy! Considering the amount of people in the
restaurant, the noise level wasn't bad at all. We were able to converse easily. A fun, satisfying time for us. Feeding six people in NYC for $200.00 was a pretty good deal in my opinion.

The food was excellent and served family style it was just like eating at my Italian grandmother's house on any given Sunday growing up. The atmosphere is casual and the location is great for pre or post theater meals or anytime you're craving Italian. Despite being busy, our server, Nicole, was very attentive and courteous. Overall a wonderful dining experience. Thank you!

Had dinner with the whole fam (6 of us) after catching a broadway show... family style italian dining at its best. The chicken parm was awesome and the calamari was too! Hard to go wrong if you are feeding a hungry mob in NYC!! Make your reservations well in advance and make sure your entire party arrives on time. 10 out of 10 recommend!!

The waiter was fantastic! He told us what he would recommend, when asked, and he was right. He asked if we were local, on business or in town for fun and where we were from. When finding out we were from out of town, he told us about local points of interest that we could visit. The bread served with the meal was delightful and I don't usually eat the bread. The food was very, very good - rather basic Italian fare but the flavor was outstanding! Somebody told us it was loud, busy and we would feel like we were rushed out after dining because they are so busy. This was definitely not the case. Would certainly recommend it and hope to return.

We had booked two tables for 6 people, one at 8:30 another at 9:00, since we were not sure when our pre-dinner event would finish, nor how many people would actually want to go out to eat. A few of us arrived a bit late for the second reservation (and we had called ahead to warn about being late for the first one) and although we waited a bit, they had a table for 12 people ready for us in within 15 minutes--even though they were packed (on a Friday night in the theatre district). One by one, the others arrived, until our tables were fully populated with hungry folks. In addition, two members of our large and straggling group were ability-challenged--one of them needing a place to put her walker while we ate. NOT a problem, despite the crowded scene, and in fact there was even an entrance with a ramp, so if you were to come in a wheelchair, it would be a cinch to get in and get seated. For all of that we were grateful. But THEN, the food started arriving, and what a delicious surprise! Fresh, well seasoned salad, chicken that melted in your mouth, al dente pasta with delicious sauce and veggies--we were all deeply impressed, and loved the "family-style," share all around portions. So much food came, that we feared we ordered too much--and yet, we seem to have finished it all! Only problem was the noise level, which seems hard to avoid in any restaurant these days, especially one as popular as Carmine's. While this place has been around a long time, its service and the quality of the food has not in any way gone "downhill." We were super happy we chose Carmines for our rather tardy group of poets and writers.
